Friday Free-For-All with JL Merrow


On Wednesday, our friend JL Merrow stopped by to talk about male primary school teachers and a bunch of you reminisced about your own favourites.  Well, today JL is back and brings along a giveaway, a copy of her latest work, Caught!, the first in her Shamwell Tales series.  To be included in the random drawing, just leave your email addy in a comment.  :)





You can run from the past…but the past runs faster

Shamwell Tales, Book 1



Behind Robert’s cheerfully eccentric exterior lies a young heart battered and bruised by his past. He’s taken a job teaching in a village primary school to make a fresh start, and love isn’t part of his plans. But he’s knocked for six—literally—by a chance encounter with the uncle of two of his pupils.

Sean works in pest control, rides a motorbike, and lives on a council estate. On the face of it, he shouldn’t have anything in common with Robert’s bow-tie, classic-car style and posh family background. Yet Robert is helpless to resist Sean’s roguish grin, and a rocky, excruciatingly embarrassing start doesn’t keep the sparks between them from flaring.

Despite Robert’s increasingly ludicrous attempts to keep his past where it belongs, his past hasn’t read the memo. And soon his secrets could be the very things that drive Sean away for good…




Warning: contains the alarming misadventures of a pest control technician, a stepsister with a truly unfortunate name, and a young man who may have more bow ties than sense.
